Forest Retreat invites viewers to discover the delights of rain, a precious resource.   The "retreat," surrounded by a thicket of sculpted stylized trees, is a small gazebo like building with a soft rain falling from the perimeter of its roof.   It is a pastoral place that is involved with the elemental rhythms of nature and a place where one can go to contemplate or for a respite from the cares of the day.
